Post-game replays.

Postby Capt.Mainwaring on Sun Dec 12, 2010 5:37 pm

After playing a few games, i have really enjoyed reading through the logs to think about strategies for future games. I was wondering if there would be any sort of possibility of there being someone of making a kind of replay facility to actually watch what happened on the map. Often things can be missed between turns and in fog of war games you are completely unable to see what actually happened elsewhere on the map. Obviously this function would only be available after the game has reached it's end for all players.

If anyone has played the Civilization series of games, I was thinking something akin to the end of game highlights would be extremely helpful. For those of you who haven't, it would basically consist showing all regions of the map and then playing through each go in turn but at an accelerated rate (with a pause option?). I'm not sure how hard this would be as i'm no computer programmer, but I could see it being a incredibly useful tool, as well as being quite entertaining also. What do you think?

I was just thinking the same thing myself when I found your post. I think it's a great idea and I hope someone does design one.

On first thought I really liked this idea, but then I realised that I wouldn't want any current or future opponents looking at my old games to see how I played in fog or what strategies I was using on some of the more complex maps.

So while I agree it could be a good teaching tool, I don't think I would want my past games available for analysis by my opponents.

yeah i do see what you mean. it could maybe be a selectable option when setting up the game. alternatively it could only be available on non fog-of-war games so secret strategies would have been able to be seen throughout the game. my personal choice would be different however, and allow post game replays to only be seen by players of that actual game, after all, if they haven't paid attention in the game then they won't be paying much attention to the replay afterwards either.

Restrict it to your own games, or non-fog games.

yes, that is pretty much my thoughts too. replays for any non-fog game you are involved in and on fog games it could be a selectable option at the start of the game by the host.

Interesting idea, but I'm not sure it would be workable or easy to implement.

I as well, like the idea. However it has been tossed around several times, and is one of the harder ones to implement.

Okay, hear me out.

Now this may seem a bit off kilter. It may have already been spoken of previously, I apologize for not checking earlier posts first, But I had a brief vision of being able to replay the games from the beginning to the end in a playback form. To be able to see as players take over the map and the battles that ensue. It would be like the data log describing each turn move, but with it happening on the map. A bit frivolous, but cool sounding.

With troop numbers and all that? That would be...cool, I guess. I think it's been suggested before, though.

Has been suggested before. Many players disapproved of it because players didn't want others to know how they played a certain game with Fog of War.

What if it was available for all except fog games? That way those hidden tactics could stay hidden, but players would be able to see how games were played out in other style of games? I think its a good idea, and i have wanted to see this myself on some games.

Or in a fog game, you can only see the game from your perspective.. so things you wouldn't have been able to see would have still been foggy
rds is awesome!
